Re: So Where Will they March Next?
I agree with you completely. I usually end up talking to the employees on ontology (reality belief systems), primate neurological states and other such topics and these teenagers eat it up. I agree they don't dislike learning, but they DO dislike being talked down to --which is what most teachers do, it seems-- and they associate this position of "you're lower than me" as being a whole part of the learning process and subsequently reject it. If you make learning an exchange that they're welcome to be a part of, then teenagers seem to enjoy it.
